On 9 July 2016 we gathered at the social enterprise incubator, Impact Hub Amsterdam, to learn about the Art of Hosting, an innovative approach to leadership that helps you have conversations that matter, no matter how small or large your organisation is.
Amis Boersma, coach, workshop facilitator and impact producer with over 10 years of experience in the field of international activism and social change, gave us an introduction into this highly effective way of harnessing the collective wisdom and self-organizing capacity of groups of any size.
Based on the assumption that people give their energy and lend their resources to what matters most to them – in work as in life – the Art of Hosting blends a suite of powerful conversational processes to invite people to step in and take charge of challenges facing them.
More about the Impact Hub
The Impact Hub is about the power of innovation through collaboration. They believe there is no shortage of good ideas to solve the issues of our time. But there is an acute lack of collaboration and support structures to help make them happen. The Impact Hub was founded to address this need.
Thus, the Impact Hub created spaces that combine the best of a trusted community, innovation lab, business incubator and the comforts of home. To date, there are 27+ open Impact Hubs and many more in the making, from Amsterdam to San Francisco, Johannesburg, Melbourne and Sao Paulo.
